KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.

—Valerie Taylor

The first day of class may seem a little intimidating, especially due to the fact that most of your classmates won’t be able to speak English. However everyone is there to learn and have a fun time doing so, so just remember to take it easy and make a bunch of friends! By the end of my quarter here at KCP, everyone in my class were friends and whenever we had presentations it didn’t seem like such a big deal because we all knew each other.

—Brian Bergquist
